Guided Reading

At St John with St Augustine Primary School we follow 'RIC' reading.

 

The new objectives are: 

Retrieve

Interpret - including predictions

Choice - including language, structure and presentation

Viewpoint - including history and culture if appropriate

Perform - to make way for the Reading objectives of performance poetry and play scripts

Review - to include written recommendations, presentations and discussions as required in upper KS2

 

MONDAY:

We start on a Monday with our Wow Opener such as a video or an image. This will be related to the extract or short text which is the focus for the week. 

Following this WOW, the children will answer 3 questions. We start with a retrieval, then move onto an inference and end with a choice. 

 

After this is complete, the children are guided through any tricky vocabulary where definitions are given and words discussed. Finally, the teacher reads the text. 

 

TUESDAY: 

On Tuesday we start to use close reading techniques. This is where the children read re-read and start to analyse what the text is about. The children will have a focus e.g. Summary and the lesson will focus around this.

 

WEDNESDAY:

This is comprehension day where the children now use the information they have gathered over the last to day to answer the questions. 

 

THURSDAY: 

Thursday is a focus on the class novel. The children will complete an activity on the the class novel each week. 

 

FRIDAY: 

Reading for enjoyment takes place every Friday. We take time to read a class novel or listen to an audio book. 

 

Our last read was: Who let the Gods out? Maz Evans

 

Our current read: Simply the Quest! Maz Evans
